We stayed here just one night. Spacious, clean and fresh. Had an appropriate beach feel fitting in with the area. The view was very nice from room 11. Could clearly sea the beach and ocean, was beautiful. The rooms had fans instead of air con so was a little warmer than normal. However with the windows open and the balcony... More

We usually stay direct beach front, but the main road thru Coolum can get noisy so I was looking for a little bit of peace and quite, and Surf Dance was very quiet. I requested a room with a view, even if it mean climbing a couple of flights of stairs and my request was granted. From the lounge and... More

Our stay here was wonderful, every morning waking up to the sound of tropical birds singing, we were lucky to get the beach views from our balcony and our bedroom, the apartment had a lovely homely feel to it and was well equipped with everything we needed and the owners were lovely friendly people, I really enjoyed my stay and...

Our 1 bedroom unit was clean and comfy and the location of Surf Dance Units is very good! However, our unit No. 6 ( unlike the other renovated units reviewed ) had not been renovated yet and our kitchen and bathroom were original 70s/early 80s with old fashioned and run down fixtures. We also only had an "ocean glimpse" from... More

I was very happy with my stay at Surf Dance. The apartment was spacious, clean, in good repair, and very comfortable. It was also great value and I would definitely stay here again. Excellent kitchen, and nice balcony too. The property is on a quiet street so there's minimal traffic noise from the main road. It's approximately a 15 minute... More

I can recommend this accommodation to all who want value for money. Surf Dance is located only one street back from the beach so avoids the traffic noise. Our one bedroom apartment had a balcony with sea views although not all are so lucky. The accommodation itself was clean and functional with a full kitchen and a laundry. If you... More

I have stayed at Coolum but always on the front, this time I decided to try Surf Dance. The unit was wonderfully appointed. Yes, it does not have air con but there was always a beautiful breeze flowing through the unit and it does not have a lift so you need to walk up but the exercise is good. Our... More

When in coolum, we stay here. Trish and John are wonderful and so is Maude the dog. It has wonderful views and is in a prime location. Just set back 1 street from the beach, it's not crazy with traffic. You can easily book tours from the office and anything you need is just a short walk away. A wonderful... More

While the accommodation was handy to central Coolum and had pleasant ocean views & sea breezes, there were several factors we found unsatisfactory. 1. Cleanliness standards: sub-par . Namely, dirty floors resulting in black feet & dirty pots & pans requiring washing before use & dirty rags left on the balcony. 2. Unreasonable Management Attitude: Our experience at this motel...

We found it an excellent place to stay handy to the shops and the Surf Club plus the Bowls Club. The hosts, John and Trish were very helpful and friendly nothing seemed to be any trouble for them. The facilities in the apartment were excellent down to including clothes pegs.
